6:50 am
most of the work was working on say elevations. i believe the only change on the tier is on the ground floor the space that the sponsor is giving to the community for the community to use as they wish councilmember on the castro side of the elevation. there's a store front entrance. but the big changes are the exterior materials when we presented it previously we sort of had a space holderer of concrete panels and after much discussion with the planning group people we decided to go with the terry cot tile. and the color range which is
6:51 am
depicted here is burgundy red. we've decided to consolidate the colors and have less randomness >> a lot of other adjust and refinements took place. the corner glass was refined and the top where there's a wind-screen for the roof-deck we were concerned about the way it was meeting the more solid areas. on the castro side we - revised the residential entry piece and

look at the aluminum glazing the bottle i didn't rails become glass instead of metal. and that's the major changes that we've gone through sins we've presented this project originally. okay. we'll open it up for public comment >> i have one speaker card. david >> president fong i'm new to this. i live at 24 market to the west of the new construction. i understand the structure was approved last year and this is a

matter of refinancing the details. i would like to communicate because of the increased scale of the building adjacent - in relation to the adjacent building it will be twice the size of ourselves. i will talk about the negative impact on the daylight in our building. we have 12 units. the way the current architect is set up it has all the total daylight in our building alone. i understand that many people miss the opportunity to speak out on this and i'm glad people express certain about the design of the facade. what i have not seen or heard is
6:54 am
the discussion of the north and western facade. many of the dozens of folks in those units with going to look out their window and face the wall that they're currently having. i'm not hearing the discussion about the other folks on the two sides of the building and what we're going to have to look at. i'm not seeing a rendering in any point over the last 9 most that show us the sides of the building. can we give as much consideration to the east and northern facades as the other

6:58 am
>> to the spectacular who spoke about the north side maybe i can have the architect answer a questioning. i'm looking at castro street and maybe the north and west maybe windowless because, you know, because of the property line windows i would think. it looks like we're going to have a continuance of the whatever the tile ends up being will be replicated
6:59 am
>> we actually do have in our package the property line elevations. there are windows shown on the property lines and there's actually, the existing vegetation that's shown on the steps in one of the property line which is facing a small walkway. we did discuss quite a bit bit more than not discussing it at all the property line walls and the rear elevation with the neighborhood groups. the variety discussions including putting a live wall and i explained how difficult that would be. the major concerns besides the
7:00 am
street frontage is how the roof would look from the neighbors up the hill. we studied that also and looked at it where the roof desk was places and again drawings about brown but we've looked this project from the sides and the erase. all areas were tackled at the meetings >> i'm sure they have been i ask that you read to the speaker or anybody who wants to see that. >> their welcome to contact me. >> thank you. >> any additional comments? >> commissioners that will place you under general comment not to exceed 15 minutes.
